The weird thing is the Intermatic 104P timer - the ON stop fell off. I found it loose a month ago and tightened it by hand. Today it was missing and I found it on the floor. I put it back on and used a pliers to tighten it. Anyone else have that problem?
I have had them slide before, I think they screw has a slight tip that wears down..YOu can buy replacements through amazon I believe

I had the same problem before I switched to automation. I think it's fairly common. Tighten with pliers definitely helps. Not sure why this happens as new ones seem to work pretty well just hand tightened. Maybe the switch requires more force to throw as it ages and this causes it to drag the stops?

This is a great reason to switch to automation. :laughblue: :laughblue:
